I just read your article on "Piracy is progressive taxation" and found it very thoughtful and insightful, and will try to keep my eyes open for articles of yours in the future.


I'm a small publisher of poetry (my own), and it called to mind the "controversy" of a year or so ago when everybody was upset that Amazon.com was offering used copies of books along side new... like one or two being sold is going to impact my sales overall! And like you, I find myself buying a lot more books now than I ever did before, because of the accessibility ofwhat I want online... it's gotten me so into the habit that I'll even buy a brand new full price hardback, something I NEVER would do in the old days except under extreme circumstances!
